    I learned a lot making this one. It was one of the first attempts at paper piecing and also learning how to hand quilt.

    You did a great job! Love the cardinals! Have a male and female couple who are very tame. They come by the patio table frequently for peanuts and peanut butter I put out for them. They are precious birds and have tender hearts like humans. When any bird dies (no matter what breed), they don't come near the feeder for days and eat because they're so sad. Other breeds - it doesn't faze them; they keep on eating. WTG on your first time pping and HQing! :D

    I really like to hand quilt. I think it is relaxing too. Usually have a quilt on my PV frame and also have several others that I work on using my smaller frame. Trying to use Aunt Becky tool but usually end up quilting like a little old lady showed me years ago using both hands, right hand on top and left hand underneath.
